I have a question about some lag in the viewers

BTW, I've seen no difference in fps or video performance when I upgraded from the non-EEP 6.3.9 Firestorm to the latest 6.4.21.  Maybe it is faster with ALO enabled if anything.  I want my water to look like the old water, so I used the Default setting for water EEP.

The only thing I noticed, and liked a lot, was I could have ALM turned on and NOT use transparent water.  It did make a different to me and most places I go, I'm not near water. That wasn't an option until this latest version.  I do turn  on transparency when I'm taking pictures.  It's just nice to have the option with water without losing the use of ALM.  I recall water being one of the major players when EEP went live and people were complaining.

This may just be my experience but it's always nice to have more options with graphics for everyone's individual set up.

With AMD cards (especially modern ones) you're severely hampered by the Windows OpenGL driver - if you have the chance, try out SL on Linux - find a distro that works for you (I personally use Fedora) - I've (no joke) doubled my performance making that move.

Again: Only if you have the chance. If you need to stay with Windows, stay with Windows. If you know what you're doing, you can maybe try dual-booting.

Alright, I thought as much with AMD, but yeah, I am stuck with Windows due to what I do. I could try a dual boot, would probably need another SSD before try that, since the I am using is 250GB and has 76GB left. I wish there was a way to improve it on Windows though :/

I'm using an AMD and windows.  I do as well as most people seem to be doing on Nvidia.  SL can be laggy.  Your best bet is to set up several graphic presets.  One especially for busy places.  I have several saved for difference circumstances.

We've put a lot of work in the upcoming Catznip release to improve performance, however we're limited in the amount of hardware we can test on (and both are using Nvidia).

I would be appreciative if you could give the Catznip Beta a try and see if that works out faster for you, it should be noticeably so, but AMD is a bit of a blind spot and we really do need people to pile on and report back.

After trying it out in the same spot, with view distance of 128, and shadows on, I am getting better frame rates actually. Now going from 16 - 21, instead 9 - 10 fps.

Impressive work @Coffee Pancake

I'll give it a download on Fri this week and report back (currently working away from home, with my crappy laptop!)
